Description
 
A distinctive Vaccinium (Blueberry) collected by Jens Nielsen in western Yunnan at 3000 meters.  Large leaves of serious substance alternately flank the arching stems and take on red-bronze colors when young as well in winter on the least mature leaves.  No surprises on the white urn-shaped flowers or with the purple-black fruit which add ornament to an already interesting plant.  We can only guess as to mature size of the plant but would think 3'-4' tall with arching and trailing branches to 6' or more.  This is likely epiphytic in the wild which means good drainage in the garden.
